Road racers – here’s where to get your IOMTT signatures

In News, Roads

STILL need signatures for that elusive Mountain Course License? Fear not, as the clubs can sign you off – and here’s where.

With just six weekends to go until road racers are due out for their first laps of the Isle of Man TT circuit, only a handful of opportunities remain to acquire the necessary prerequisites.

After news last night that Oliver’s Mount Spring Cup riders would miss out on signatures this year due to the event’s cancellation, some TT competitors may still be seeking those last few to tidy up their license.

But between now and the end of May, there are plenty of British clubs that could fill the void.

There's still doubt whether the likes of John McGuinnes and Ian Hutchinson will line up on the grid, let alone have enough signatures to renew their licenses...

No Limits Racing will be hitting Cadwell Park next weekend and Donington Park the week before the start of the TT fortnight. They have availability for both rounds in the Endurance race, and some Sprint classes.

The Pirelli Super Series 1000, NLR Club 600s and Supertwin classes still have a few grid spots left, and club bosses are even plotting an extra 600 race at Cadwell if the demand is met.

NG Road Racing will be at Anglesey next weekend for their first official round of the year, after the original first round was axed due to snow, then Cadwell in four weeks’ time.

The Powerbikes, Supertwins and Open Sidecars all have some availability but club chiefs are urging riders and teams to get in touch as soon as possible.

Thundersport GB won’t be able to accommodate any big bikes or 600s as their grids are completely full, but there could still be a few Supertwin spaces open.

Knockhill Motor Sports Club is kicking off its 2018 season this weekend at the Fife track, but the entry list looks to be rammed with solos and sidecars, so ring the circuit office if you’re up North.

Bemsee has very limited solo and sidecar availability for their Cadwell round at the end of April, as well as their Snetterton round the weekend before the TT begins. Club bosses say riders should look to get booked sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment.

The Wirral 100 Motor Club will be making its annual trip to Oulton Park in just over a fortnight, and the club could still have room to squeeze in a few Formula 600s, 650 Twins, Powerbikes and Open Sidecars – ring the office for more info.

EMRA and Darley Moor are both on circuit on the early May Bank Holiday Monday, where both sidecar and solo slots remain.

The Melville Motor Club and the NEMCRC both have rounds at East Fortune within the next few weeks, with a number of solos and sidecar spaces free.

The signature clock may be winding down, but there is still time – contact the club offices to make sure your license is done and dusted in time for the TT.
